The University of South Carolina student from Robbinsville, New Jersey, disappeared from Columbia’s Five Points entertainment district one night in March 2019. Her body was later found in remote woods some 65 miles (105 kilometers) from Columbia.

Her body had more than 100 wounds to the face, neck and other parts of the body — a death that turned a national spotlight on ride-hailing safety and led to some changes, including more prominent displays of driver license plates.

Prosecutors have argued that Rowland trapped Josephson in the back seat of his black Chevrolet Impala using the backseat childproof locks. Investigators said they subsequently found the victim’s blood and cellphone in Rowland’s vehicle.

Expert at murder trial: Uber rider stabbed up to 120 times

  Expert at murder trial: Uber rider stabbed up to 120 times COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — There were more than 100 stab wounds on a South Carolina university student killed by a man who attacked her after she mistakenly thought his car was her Uber ride, a pathologist testified Monday. There was also so little blood left in 21-year-old Samantha Josephson's body — 20 milliliters (1.3 tablespoons) when a body typically has at least 4 liters (1 gallon) — that workers at her autopsy struggled to get enough blood for routine testing, said Dr. Thomas Beaver, who conducted the examination of the woman after her death.

A South Carolina man has gone on trial accused of killing a woman who got into his car thinking it was her Uber ride . Nathaniel Rowland is accused of the kidnap and murder of 21-year-old university student Samantha Josephson in March 2019. These included a state law requiring drivers to make license plate numbers visible in the front of their vehicles and criminal penalties for those who impersonate ride -hailing drivers. Ms Josephson, from New Jersey, was due to graduate from the University of South Carolina and go on to law school.

Dalila Jazic, the investigator, also showed clothes with apparent blood on them, saying they were found in a trash can at the home of Rowland's girlfriend at the time. The former girlfriend has testified she noticed blood in Rowland's car and watched him clean the multi-tool in the hours after Josephson's disappearance.

On cross-examination by Rowland's defense attorney, Jazic acknowledged that no scratches were found on Rowland's arms or face when she photographed him after his arrest.

Rowland's defense team has argued although Josephson appeared to fight back against her attacker, none of Rowland's DNA was found on her body, and no visible marks were found on Rowland following his arrest.

Earlier Thursday, Todd Schenk, a crime scene expert with the State Law Enforcement Division, told jurors that Josephson was already dead when her body was left in the woods.
